The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I went into this thinking it was about Hungry, Hungry Hippos, so, a little disappointed but not bad overall. This is like Harry Potter in exactly the way you'd expect it to be in that its really easily-digestible writing and a fun read all the way through, but different in that you can probably go see the movie and get a better experience, even if the book was only $6.00 on your way to get cereal in the grocery store.
Also found out they filmed parts of the movie in North Carolina! Couldn't be more proud that parts of my home state look like an impoverished backwater in a dystopian future.
